América has already secured its ticket to the playoffs and, to the surprise of many, still has a chance to qualify directly, that is, to play in the quarterfinals, because, despite its poor start to the tournament, in which it was even in the bottom of the table, it has won its last six games in a row.

For this reason, we will explain below what the Águilas need to do to secure their ticket to the quarterfinals.

América's next match

Despite their resurgence, the team from Coapa will have a difficult closing match against a team that is in the Top 6 of the general table.  

Matchday 17: América vs Cruz Azul 

What does América need to do to qualify directly to the quarterfinals? 

The Águilas must beat Cruz Azul and hope that Atlas or Puebla do not win on the last matchday to move into fourth place in the standings for the last ticket to the quarterfinals. In this way, the pass to the Liguilla will depend on them winning and on the Rojinegros and La Franja not winning on the last matchday. 

America on a positive streak since the coaching change

América has undergone a transformation in just a few weeks, and the change of coach in the squad has profoundly benefited their aspirations to fight for the title in the Clausura 2022.

Solari left a record of one win, three draws, and four losses, making his departure inevitable. Then, Fernando Ortiz took the helm of the team after being in charge of the U-20 category. Although 'Tano' made his debut with a loss against Rayados and then a draw in the National Classic, he went on a roll with six consecutive victories. From being at the bottom of the standings, they moved up to fifth place.
